    Mock Draft w/ Scouting Reports

    1st round

    *Cordy Glenn, G/OT, Georgia*
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 345.*
    40 Time: 5.15. 10-Yd Split: 1.76.*
    Bench: 31.*
    Arm: 35 3/4. Hand: 10.*
    Projected Round (2012): 1.*
    4/6/12: At the Combine, Glenn showed off excellent speed with a surprisingly fast 40 time for such a large man. His only real flaw is his feet, but he has the potential to improve on that in the NFL. Some teams will consider keeping him at tackle in the NFL. After a rough first day at the Senior Bowl, Glenn played very well in the remaining practices and in the actual game.*

    As a senior, Glenn was a starter at left tackle. In many games in 2011, he was simply dominant. Glenn has the power, balance and long arms to make him a well-rounded blocker. He had no problem opening holes in the ground game, and generally was a good pass protector.*

    In the first contest of 2011, the senior had a disaster of a game. Boise State's Shea McClellin and the rest of the Broncos defensive line had their way with Glenn as he allowed multiple hits on the quarterback. Glenn not only gave up a few sacks, but he was also flagged multiple times. Later, Glenn had some struggles with speed rushers from LSU and Michigan State. Against South Carolina, he was beat by Melvin Ingram on a rush and Ingram was able to scoop up a fumble and return it for a touchdown.*

    At the same time, Glenn battled and had plenty of good games against many quality opponents. Yes, he got beat on some plays, but he also had his good share of wins. In the NFL, Glenn may be best as a guard in a power man-blocking scheme. He also could play right tackle. Glenn doesn't look like he has quick enough feet to stay at left tackle. Glenn could be a future Pro Bowler on the inside.*

    8/20/11: Cordy Glenn broke into the starting lineup as a freshman in 2008 with 10 starts. In 2009, he started nine games between right and left guard. Glenn also started four games at left tackle due to injuries along the Georgia offensive line. Last year, he found a home and started 13 games at left guard. Glenn is a powerful run blocker who moves well and is solid pass protector. He is a massive linemen qho would fit well in a power man blocking scheme.

    2nd round

    *Brandon Brooks, G/T, Miami of Ohio*
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 346.*
    40 Time: 4.98. 10-Yd Split: 1.71.*
    Bench: 36.*
    Arm: 33 1/2. Hand: 10.*
    Projected Round (2012): 3-4.*
    4/6/12: Brooks surprisingly did not receive an invitation to the Combine. He was one of the standouts of the East-West Shrine with a phenomenal week of practice. The powerful Brooks pushed defensive linemen around while showing real athleticism. He performed extremely well at his pro day and put up some impressive numbers.

    3rd round

    *Josh Chapman, DT/NT, Alabama*
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 319.*
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.*
    Arm: 32.*
    Projected Round (2012): 3-4.*
    4/11/12: Chapman couldn't work out at the Combine or Alabama's pro day as he is still recovering from knee surgery. Chapman recorded 23 tackles with 3.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and two passes batted down in 2011. For most of the season, he played with a torn knee ligament.*

    Chapman is a quality run defender but limited as a pass rusher. He looks like a strong nose tackle candidate for a 3-4 defense in the NFL. Chapman has good technique with natural pad level. His injury could impact the beginning of his rookie season.*

    8/28/11: Josh Chapman was a backup to Terrence Cody in 2009 and 2008. Last year, Chapman broke into the starting lineup at nose guard and recorded 31 tackles with 3.5 tackles for a loss and one sack. He is a strong run defender at the point of attack. Chapman could potentially add more weight. In the NFL, he looks like a potential fit as a nose tackle, or possibly as a five technique in a 3-4 defense.

    4th round

    *Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State*
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 222.*
    40 Time: 4.44.*
    Bench: 28.*
    Vertical: 36. Broad: 10-2.*
    Hand: 9 3/4.*
    Projected Round (2012): 3-4.*
    4/4/12: Turbin is a sleeper prospect who has some speed and is extremely strong. He showed that off at the Combine. Turbin averaged 6.1 yards per carry this season, rushing for 1,517 yards and 19 touchdowns. He caught 17 passes for 171 yards and four scores as well. In 2009, Turbin broke out with 1,296 yards and 13 touchdowns. He missed the 2010 season because of an injury.*

    Turbin is put together well and is an elusive runner. He could surprise at the next level. Turbin could be one of those mid-round running backs who turns into a good pro and makes teams regret passing on him.

    5th round

    *James-Michael Johnson, ILB, Nevada*
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 241.*
    40 Time: 4.60.*
    Bench: 23.*
    Vertical: 37. Broad: 10-4.*
    Arm: 32 7/8. Hand: 9 5/8.*
    Projected Round (2012): 4-5.*
    4/14/12: Johnson was solid at the Combine. He totaled 100 tackles with 5.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 2011. Johnson is a little stiff and struggled with his footwork at the Senior Bowl. He is going to need some grooming at the next level.*

    8/25/11: James-Michael Johnson was an All-WAC performer in 2010, when he totaled 88 tackles with eight tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks. A year earlier, he had 58 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss. Johnson is a quality college player who could be a good developmental linebacker in the NFL.

    6th round

    *Greg Childs, WR, Arkansas*
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 219.*
    40 Time: 4.39.*
    Vertical: 36.5.*
    Broad: 10-5.*
    Hand: 10 1/8.*
    Projected Round (2012): 4-6.*
    4/4/12: At his pro day, Childs burned a fast 40 at 4.39. He wasn't as fast at the Combine (4.55), but Childs is gradually showing that he is improving from his knee injury. That recovery is definitely going to help his stock.*

    Childs was very quiet in 2011, and it looked like he hadn't fully recovered from hurting his knee the year before. Childs played in 11 games, making just 21 receptions for 240 yards. Late in the season, he was looking better and made some good catches in the Cotton Bowl against Kansas State. Childs was showing his old form at times during the East-West Shrine practices. Some have been moving him up draft boards, with the consensus opinion having Childs as a fourth-round pick.*

    8/19/11: Greg Childs offers some size and good quickness. As a sophomore, he had 48 receptions for 894 yards and seven scores. Last year, Childs was having another fine season with 46 catches for 659 yards and six scores through eight games before a patellar tendon injury knocked him out for the final five contests. If he comes back healthy and productive that would alleviate the injury concerns and put him back in contention to be a second-round pick.

    7th round

    *Akiem Hicks, DT/NT, Regina University (Canada)*
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 318.*
    40 Time: 5.21.*
    Bench: 26.*
    Vertical: 31.5. Broad: 9-0.*
    Arm: 35 1/8. Hand: 10 1/8.*
    Projected Round (2012): 4-6.*
    4/11/12: Hicks was decent at the Combine, but doing well in his team interviews were probably more critical than having a big field performance. The Canada product Hicks caught scouts attention by flashing at the East-West Shrine practices. He is a large man who has some quickness and athleticism.

    Hicks was at LSU before leaving the program in January of 2010. He was signed out of the community college ranks prior to that. Hicks has physical tools, but teams will need to do research into his background.

    7th round

    *Keith Tandy, CB, West Virginia*
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 202.*
    40 Time: 4.51.*
    Arm: 31 3/4. Hand: 8 3/4.*
    Projected Round (2012): 4-6.*
    4/21/12: Tandy had 64 tackles (50 solo) with two tackles for a loss, four interceptions and nine passes broken up this season. He is a gritty player who scraps and fights. Tandy produced a good game against LSU with an impressive pass break up and a near interception. He also played well against Cincinnati.*

    Tandy had a solid week at the East-West Shrine, but he did not receive an invitation to the Combine. It looked like a bad snub as Tandy had a good pro day performance. He has generated a lot of interest and is taking a lot of pre-draft visits. Don't be surprised if Tandy goes higher than expected on draft day.*

    8/25/11: Keith Tandy tied to be in the top 10 in the nation in interceptions last season with six. He also had 11 passes broken up with 57 tackles. Tandy was a first-team All-Big East selection. He broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore and recorded three interceptions with seven passes broken up. If Tandy can match or improve his numbers, he could push his stock into the second round.

    7th round

    Jeremy Jones Saftey Wayne State

    7th round*

    Adrien Robinson TE Cincy

    I wish Glenn would be there but now, every mock I see has him going to the Bengals; which makes a ton of sense for them.


    I see Hightower in Gleen's spot in the first round, I like your 2-4 picks but then I see the 5th round pick being the best WR on the board.
    The Steeler the only way.

    bengals have said they wouldnt drft a guard in the firrt round, at least not at 17....last year they said they would take a receiver first an check out QBs in the early second and thats exactly what they did so im kinda believing whats coming out of bengal land.

    Kellen Moore

    On Boise State QB Kellen Moore, how do you balance productivity with the measurables? Baalke: I think 32 teams are battling that right now. You're always looking at the film. And you look at the stats and the production and the winning. What's the most important thing for a quarterback to do? It's to win games, to find a way to win, to lead their team to victory. Kellen has done it better than any quarterback in the history of college football. So that has to mean something. What it means to me is going to be different than what it means to the next person. But you're certainly taking a look at what they've done in the past because that's usually a pretty good indicator of what they're going to do in the future. - 49ers general manager Trent Baalke, NFL Combine Transcript

    Very Nice Mock. I'd be very Happy with this and Even Happier if we traded out of the first for an extra 2nd & 3rd or 2nd & 4th. I'd keep who you have with exception of Glenn and grab Bobby Massie or Brandon Washington & Derek Wolfe or Ty Hilton.
